How Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Can Help You With Weight Management


When it comes to weight management Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help a person change their mindset and behaviours around food. By accessing the subconscious mind during trance, a hypnotherapist can help a person identify and address any underlying issues that may be contributing to their overeating or unhealthy food choices. Hypnotherapy can help address any emotional issues that may be contributing to your weight gain, such as stress, anxiety, or low self-esteem.


A study in 2020 of a randomised controlled trial using the Eriksonian method of hypnosis (as used in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) took 82 adults with BMI’s of 30-40 who were then split into two groups. A control group of 39 people were given 8 weeks of standard nutritional information and a hypnosis group of 41 people were given 8 sessions of hypnosis as well as training in self-hypnosis, along with the standard nutritional information over 8 weeks. The study concluded that a combination of Hypnosis and self-hypnosis was found to significantly improve the eating behaviours in overweight individuals, seeming to have a beneficial effect on weight loss.


While hypnotherapy for weight management is not a magic solution, it can be a powerful tool for those who are committed to making lasting changes in their lifestyle, mindset and choices around food.
